    For Italian food go to il Camino! SO good! Their ambiance isn't too great, but they have homemade pasta that is to die for! I would recommend getthing the gnocchi with meat sauce. They serve it to you in a hot, large caserole dish so you'll have leftovers and the price is very inexpensive!

      Hrm, I was actually there recently and had the gnocchi and thought it was very bad. The sauce was bland and there was so much of it that it was more like a soup. The gnocchi itself was heavy and tough. I agree, they do give you a ton. Luckily I was able to give my leftovers away!

        Il Camino is off and on - but mostly on. You may have been there on an "off" nite. I recommend getting the pasta as a side, not main, and getting either the chicken picatta, shrimp picatta, veal parm, etc as the main......

          Wow, sounds like you're use to a different kind of italian food than they offer. Growing up in an italian family I've found their food to be very similar to what my grandmother makes. I've been there many times and have always found their food to be consistent and good. Sorry to hear you didn't like it. Il Forno in Fitchburg has more of a garlicky flavored sauce if that's what you like....
